You call that a rumour? This is a rumour.

What would essentially be a Lowry/Bosh swap possible, according to ESPN’s Ric Bucher.

Yeah. So that’s the craziest thing I’ve seen all night, and the Raptors just drafted Bruno Caboclo.

No word on if this is legit or not, but Bucher is a pretty well-respected member of the NBA media, so it needs to be at least considered. Of course, he could be absolutely off his rocker, too, as most of the NBA Twitterverse seems to think.

If it is legit, I’m not sure how I feel about it. Bosh is obviously an excellent player – one of the most unique in the game – and would pair well with Valanciunas, but Lowry is younger and the unquestioned leader of this current Raptor contingent. Norris Cole is essentially a throw-in, and would slide in as the backup to either Vasquez or whomever it is we sign this offseason.

At this point, though, it’s just scuttlebutt until we hear further. Tis the silly season.
